Chicken-And-Biscuit Cobbler

I made this family comfort dish recently for dinner.  It was enjoyed by everyone.  Shredded chicken is cooked in a delicious sauce consisting of broth, white wine, whipping cream, some white wine vinegar, and fresh herbs- rosemary, thyme, chives, and parsley.  Once the chicken mixture is cooked it is spooned into a buttered 3- quart baking dish.  The chicken is then topped with dropped buttermilk biscuits that have bacon. MMM bacon:)

This would be perfect to use up any leftover turkey you may have or just a nice comforting dish that is quite tasty for your family.
